Obituary for Carl Passerello
Carl Salvatore Passerello native of Waltham, MA.
Son of John Passerello and late Beatrice Tumminelli Passerello passed in his sleep on Wednesday, November 8th 2017.
A loving and caring husband and father, Carl is survived by his wife for 43 years, Karen Krahn Passerello. And his three children Kara Passerello, Joseph Passerello, and Kathryne Passerello, and three grandchildren Jake, Benjamin, and Rita Gustafson.
His commitment to his family was matched by his commitment to his career. Carl worked for the Raytheon Company for the last 38 years. His family at Raytheon had this to say:
"Carl Passerello was a valued employee at U.S. defense contractor Raytheon for 38 years. Carl worked as a Tool Maker and was a member in the International Association of Machinists and Aerospace Workers (I.A.M.), Local Lodge 1271, starting on February 14, 1979. As a Tool Maker, Carl was directly involved in the manufacturing of fixtures used in everything from missiles, radars and various components requested by the many departments in Raytheon. Carl was very proud of his contributions to the Tool Room and Raytheon as a whole. There was no job too big or small that Carl would not tackle.
Carl was always available for a good story or a good joke, and it was clear to everyone that worked with him that his family was very important to him. Carl was always available to lend a helping hand when he saw a fellow Tool Maker in need. Carl’s knowledge of his trade made him an important member of the Tool Room and a valuable employee of Raytheon"
Carl loved his family, especially his mother. He loved telling stories about her from when he was a child growing up on Newton St. He also loved, The Three Stooges, Fishing with friends and his grandkids. He loved music and listening to the Beatles working with his hands. He was always excited to share what he was building in his shop at work. He loved his cowboys and John Wayne, and often said how he wished he lived during that era. He was a loyal sports fan of all of our Boston sports teams.
Carl was kind and gentle, but strong with an inner strength that only few posses. He was loved greatly by all that knew him and will be so terribly missed.
Relatives and friends are respectfully invited to attend a Memorial Mass in celebration of Carl's life at Sacred Heart Church, 311 River St., Waltham, Monday, November 20, 2017 at 10 a.m. The Brasco & Sons Memorial assisted the family with arrangements.
